    Reshetnikov Eugeny Vladimirovich | 22 Jan 2007

    The former Volgograd paratrooper, he was a target in the second Alexey Pichugins trial as one of the accused. Before, in November, 2000, Eugeny Reshetnikov was admitted the executor of the attempts at Eugeny Rybin, the head of the Austrian company «East Petroleum Hendles» and sentenced to imprisonment. The customers of the crimes were not established then, the «Yukos» managements participation in it was not revealed.

    However, making his speech at the second Alexey Pichugins trial, Eugeny Reshetnikov after another prisoner, Gennady Tsygelnik, pled guilty in the assassination of the Nefteyugansk mayor Vladimir Petuhov, in the attempts at the chief executive officer of the company «Rosprom» Victor Kolesov, and also in two attempts at the businessman Eugeny Rybin. The customers of these crimes Reshetnikov, as well as Tsygelnik, referred to the deceased now Sergey Gorin and Arkady Goritovsky, called Leonid Nevzlin, Michail Khodorkovsky and Alexey Pichugin.

    On the 17-th of August 2006 Eugeny Reshetnikov was found guilty in all points of the accusation and sentenced to 18 years of imprisonment. On the 21 of February the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation upheld this decision.

    In the interview to the radio station «Echo of Moscow» on the 17 of August Alexey Pichugin’s lawyer Dmitry Kurepin called such proofs of Alexey Pichugins guilt derivative and insufficient. «All derivative evidence must be confirmed by direct evidence. We didnt see any direct evidence in the course of the trial. The evidence of people according to other persons owing to the impossibility to check them are not the proofs», — the lawyer stated.

    At the third Alexey Pichugins trial Eugeny Reshetnikov, appeared as the witness for the prosecution, again gave evidence against him and the „Yukos“ top-management.

    However, at Leonid Nevzlins trial on the 21 of April 2008 Eugeny Reshetnikov confessed that the version about the connection with crimes of the «Yukos» top-management became known to him from the investigator Burtovoi.

    At the present time Eugeny Reshetnikov serves his sentence in one of the colonies of strict regime of the Volgograd region.
